Grateful Dead hippie patchwork panel lightning bolt shorts
These shorts in the picture are sold, but I can upcycle a pair of shorts for you just like these, you pick your colors. Send me a message if you're interested, I would be love to make you a custom pair.
To create these shorts, I up-cycled a pair of corduroy pants and turned it into a pair of stylin Grateful Dead lightning bolt shorts. These shorts are dark navy blue in color and I added a green corduroy strip of fabric to the bottom of them. I also added a drawstring waist so they can be adjusted in size. I kept the zipper in tack for easy access for the papa’s to use the bathroom and of course drawstring waist for the mamas or papas. I used green corduroy for the waist which was the same color as I used on the hem of the shorts. On the sides I added a patchwork panel of corduroy and used different green and blue corduroy to create it. On both sides of the shorts I added cargo style pockets, and used blue and green corduroy to create them. I put a white thirteen point corduroy lightning bolt appliqué on the cargo pockets. I sewed the bolt appliqué on an angle across the middle of the pockets. Both appliqué’s are fused to the fabric with double fusible webbing and then sewn for durability. These shorts have been machine sewn and each seam has been serged or double stitched for durability. Machine wash and please air dry.

Measurements: Send me your measurements along with color choices
Be Green-reuse- I can also up-cycle your old shorts or pants and turn them into a new one of a kind pair of shorts or pants created custom just for you.
